Top 10 Father's Day gifts for the dad who has everything

By Fred Jéquier

He's the one that taught you how to ride a bike, how to tie your tie, how to fill out a tax return, and he's also the guy who got in the passenger seat the first time you drove a car. So, even though his jokes may make you cringe, and he has no idea who your favorite singer is, with cries of, "This isn't music, it's just noise," he deserves to be reminded that we do appreciate everything he's done, and continues to do, for us. Father's Day falls on Sunday, June 16, this year, and if you're still wondering what to get your "old man" as a gift, we've got a few suggestions for you.

Keep reading to find out what our top 10 Father's Day gift ideas are for the dad who has everything.

1. A sleek wallet

Whether your dad is the kind of guy who has a credit card, a driver's license, and a loyalty card to his favorite coffee spot, or if he has a bank card for every day of the week, his I.D., a library card, and a membership card for something that even he can't remember the origin of, a Secrid wallet has him covered. At just 21 millimeters thick, the wallet is the perfect size to sit almost unnoticed in your pocket, and the metal card protector can hold up to six cards.

With a simple press of a button, the cards all pop up and are easy to remove and replace. The case has a pocket for six further cards, as well as space for paper money and receipts. If your dad needs a protector for more than six cards, there is a version available with two card protectors, as well.

2. The ultimate grill

Summer is upon us, and as such, barbecues are being planned, and grills are out. Dads tend to pride themselves on their barbecuing abilities, and there's nothing more satisfying to them than all their pals standing around the grill holding a cold beer, nodding in approval at how well the grilling is going. This is the perfect moment for your dad to explain to his friends that his grill is the best of all the grills, followed by a lengthy, almost scientific explanation as to why. Enter the George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor Grill.

Not only can he cook up to 15 portions for optimum food prep on this electric grill, but he can adjust the heat to give everyone a mouthwatering meal to order. Added to which, there's the all-important cup holder for his drink, and if it starts to rain, he can just take the intricate grilling operation to the kitchen with no adverse affect to his cooking.

3. The coolest pint glass

While dad is busy grilling, he's going to need a cool beverage to sustain him through the grueling task of cooking the best barbecue anyone has ever eaten, and the last thing he's going to want is for his beer to get warm during the process. FREEZE Cooling Pint Glass is the perfect solution. The plastic walls of the glasses contain a cooling gel that maintains a consistent temperature for hours, so all your dad needs to do is pop it in the freezer for a couple of hours in the morning, and then once he's ready to enjoy his afternoon in the sun, he can rest assured that his beer will stay cold.

4. An electric razor

When a father teaches his son to shave, it's a big moment for them both. A father has the realization that his boy is now becoming a man, and a son starts to see adulthood on the horizon. A classic wet shave is often the preferred method for those who keep a fresh look, but in the morning when you're in a rush to get up, get ready, and get to work, there just isn't time, and a rushed wet shave can result in a rather painful experience. Thankfully, electric shavers are getting better at producing a close shave. With brands such as Philips, Braun, and Panasonic producing some reliable, long-lasting models, there are plenty to choose from.

5. Shaving products

It doesn't matter if you wet shave or use an electric razor, pre- and post-shave care is a big part of the process. There are numerous shaving products on the market that help regenerate the skin, keeping you looking fresh and youthful. If you're thinking of getting your dad a razor or an electric shaver, it's definintlely worth considering adding some little extras to the gift. Grooming Lounge has a wide range of grooming and shaving products available, and as it's Father's Day coming up, they are offering a 20% discount on all of their products!

6. A beard bib

We've talked about razors and shaving products, but what about the bearded fathers out there? Well, look no further. For every shaving product, there is a beard grooming product, and this one is perfect for helping your dad with his beard trim. The beard bib is almost a double gift; it's not just for dad, as you can be sure your mom will be thankful for it, as well.

The beard bib fits around the neck and then attaches to the mirror. As the wearer starts to trim their beard, the hair is caught in the bib and can be disposed of properly—rather than lining the sink. Mom will be relieved when she's getting ready in the morning that she doesn't have to compete with the leftovers of dad's beardscaping!

7. Beard accessories

While the clean-shaven man has pre-shave cleanser and post-shave moisturiser, the bearded gentleman has oils, balms, brushes, combs, and even shampoos—all designed to maintain a tidy, clean beard from the well-defined, neat beards, all the way to the bushiest, lumberjack beards. Beard Brand has been building an impressive online presence over the last few years, and the founder, Eric Bandholz, created the company to foster a culture of pride in male grooming. If you're looking for products for yourself, or as a gift for Father's Day, Beard Brand has everything you want, need, and didn't even know you needed.

8. A heavy-duty travel mug

We talked earlier about how vital it is to ensure dad's beer stays cold in the summer, but what about his coffee? Whether he's doing the school run, on his way to work, or going on a hike, ensuring his coffee stays hot is a must. The YETI Rambler Mug is perfect for all scenarios. The double-vacuum design ensures that a cup of coffee will stay hot until the final sip. Additionally, the mug is relatively light at 14oz, and the creators pride themselves at having designed one of the most durable and over-engineered travel mugs on the market. If your old man is an avid hiker, climber, and adventurer, there are a wide range of products on the YETI website that I'm sure he'd love.

9. A hiking backpack

This particular product is in a higher price range, but with the Topo Klettersack backpack being both incredibly durable and multi-purpose, your dad is sure to to get a lot of use out of it. This stylish backpack is perfect for anyone who enjoys long hikes in rugged terrain, and the material—1000D Cordura Nylon—is thick and strong enough for most environments. It has numerous pockets and zips designed to carry any equipment one might need on an excursion, but additionally, the bag can hold day-to-day items, such as a 15-inch laptop, so he can also use it for work or as a carry-on when traveling.

10. A glamping adventure

You've bought dad his travel mug, you gave him a durable backpack, so why not complete the present with the gift of glamping for an unforgettable adventure? With so many incredible destinations and unique experiences available, a Glamping Hub gift card is easy to give and exciting to receive. Help your dad get away from the grind of his day-to-day for a long weekend or a vacation, where he can enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience!

Our last-minute Mother's Day gift guide

By Mikaela Amundson

Mother's Day is almost upon us so that means you should be planning the breakfast in bed, the cards, and, of course, the gift. We're sure you show your mom love every day, but this is an opportunity to shower the important women in your life with a little extra gratitude—moms, grandmas, aunts, honorary moms, “framily” (as my mom and I call it), and more!

Check out our last-minute gift guide below to get inspired and pick out the perfect present for the special ladies in your life.

Flowers for her

Delivery

A bouquet of flowers from Flora Queen, which delivers to over 100 countries in as little as one day, means no matter where mom is, she'll have a beautiful bouquet in her honor. Tulips are a classic Mother’s Day choice, but we love something more unexpected, like this rose and lily combo—or even a potted bromelia plant for something that will really last.

Something else with flowers

If you want to get mom some flowers that will stand the test of time, we love the idea of a floral print silk scarf. This one comes in four gorgeous floral patterns—perfect for spicing up her spring and summer looks. Alternatively, you can also go for a floral journal or some floral sneakers depending on what your mom will use the most.

Self-care Sunday


At-home facial

If your mom recently found out about Instagram and won't stop talking about her favorite influencer of late, get her something that's totally #instagoals, like a trendy Gua Sha facial tool. Your mom deserves a great self-care gift that doubles as a like-garnering post for her feed. This one comes with three different shapes to try, as well as a handy guide. Pair it with a face mask or a facial serum for the perfect Mother's Day self-care package.

Subscription box

There's nothing better than a gift that continues throughout the year, so a subscription box that gets delivered to mom on a regular basis is a perfect choice for this year's Mother's Day gift. This cruelty-free, vegan, and non-toxic makeup subscription from Petit Vour.

If your mom is not a budding beauty guru, that's quite alright; you can find subscription boxes for almost any interest or hobby. Some of our favorites include a book of the month box for the avid reader, a perfume subscription for the mom who likes to switch up her scents, and a wine subscription box. Yes, that's right. Wine.

Wares for mom

Customizable jewelry

Get her a twist on the classic locket with this customizable, and very chic, brass pendant, in which you can include a heartfelt note that she can keep with her long after Mother's Day celebrations have ended. You can round out the gift by pairing it with this hammered brass ring and bracelet for a set she'll wear forever.

Eco-friendly starter pack

Gifts that are practical, stylish, and eco-friendly are really the whole package. If your mom is looking to upgrade her eco-game from old tote bags for grocery shopping to becoming a zero-waste guru, we think eco-friendly starter kits, like this one from Package Free Shop, are the perfect jumping off point!

This one has all the basics: an insulated mug, a set of bamboo utensils, a stainless steel straw, and a bamboo toothbrush. Be sure to check out their other kits as well, like this one for zero-waste cleaning or this one for travel. Add in a trendy, reusable water bottle and an upcycled wristlet, like this one made from recycled billboards in NYC, and you mom will be good to step out to save the earth in style.

P.S. Don't forget that a glamping gift card also makes for a perfect Mother's Day gift! Getting out together into nature and making memories that will last forever? Priceless.

Experience-based gifts for the whole family

By Stephen Gillis

When thinking about what to get your family for the holidays, consider gifting an experience. Experiences are the gifts that keep on giving and will be shared and reminisced for years to come around the dinner table and over cups of coffee. Unlike things, experiences get better the more you share them with others.

Create lifelong memories with those closest to you while doing something a little out of the ordinary. Here is a list of some of the best activities to do while glamping that will make great gifts for the whole family.

Yoga

Get the whole family to disconnect, de-stress, and open your minds while doing yoga on your glamping getaway.

Yoga with the whole family is a great way to expose children to lifelong healthy activities.No matter your age or experience level, yoga can be beneficial in a myriad of ways—breathing techniques for better stamina, mindfulness for clearing away stress, and stretching to ease muscle tension and soreness. See who can hold their downward-facing dog pose the longest!

Horseback riding

Horseback riding in Croatia will get you vistas you won't see anywhere else—a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Few other animals parallel the majesty of the horse. Embrace this beautiful animal with an open spirit to embark on an indelible experience with the kids. Exploring rugged terrains and gorgeous landscapes on horseback will surely fill you and your children with fond family memories and a renewed sense of enchantment.

Safari

Get ready to see rare and endangered wildlife while on a safari in Kenya.

Witness the excitement nature has to offer on a safari in Kenya. Learn about the area's wildlife and ecosystem from the safety of a vehicle at a comfortable distance. Fascination will be the primary emotion when you and your family are experiencing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to observe the most impressive animals on our planet.

Canoeing

Explore Washington's coast from the water with a relaxing canoe ride.

Canoeing is family bonding at its finest. Everyone must be in proper balance and rhythm to ensure you remain dry by the time you dock. Navigate the shore and have a glimpse of the coastline from a new perspective. Maybe you'll even encounter some wildlife! As long as life jackets are securely fastened and you don't find yourself without a paddle, your family will be very safe on this adventure—not to mention you will leave having completed a killer arm workout.

Zip-lining

Prepare to get a bird's eye view of the jungle while zip-lining.

Few activities are as thrilling as soaring over the jungle canopy on a zip-line. Feel the fresh, rainforest air roll over you as you zip from one platform to another. Zip-lining is a great way to push the limits of the comfort zone of your family. The feeling is exhilarating, and you will leave a more courageous person. Support one another through the course, and you're in for a spectacular moment for the whole family.

Fishing

At this villa, you'll get the chance to go fishing every day from one of the best locations.

Spending the day patiently waiting for that bite to reel in a big one will be an experience never forgotten. If you are lucky, the fruits of your labor will pay off in the form of a big fish to pose with and show off to all your friends. The virtue of patience will be the biggest lesson learned on this trip—which is a valuable lesson for guests of all ages and experience levels.

Stargazing

When you're coming from the city, stargazing is an activity that is awe-inspiring.

Get out of the city and into the countryside to take a look at the beautiful stars overhead. In the city, we often forget they even exist, but once you see them, you can't stop looking. Stargazing puts everything back into perspective, as you gain a more profound appreciation for the vast scale of the universe.

Using a telescope, you can get a closer look at the moon and other planets if you look hard enough. Try to catch a glimpse of a shooting star, and don't forget to make a wish! It will truly be a dream come true and an experience your family will be craving upon returning to the city.

What we're asking for this holiday season: Our staff wishlist

By Jackie Dreyer

We understand that it can get difficult to surprise your loved ones year after year with new gift ideas, and we're sure that Mom's scarf and candle collection is close to hitting its limit. One thing that never gets old—and doesn't require any wrapping paper (hello, eco-friendly!)—however, is the gift of travel. Giving someone an experience, especially if it's somewhere they've never been before, is one present they'll never forget.

Our staff is chomping at the bit to head to an endless list of accommodations on Glamping Hub, so we had them sit down and write their wish list for this holiday season, choosing the ideal getaway they'd love to see pop up under the tree this year.


"I usually do not travel much during the winter because I dislike the cold, but there is something about this accommodation that seems so unique and cozy that it would be a must-visit during winter. I would love to ski in the Alps! What's not to love?"
— Jessica A., Partnerships Manager

"From when I read Phillip Pullman's book, "Northern Lights," as a child, seeing this wonder of the world has been high on the list of things I want to do. What better way to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience than in an accommodation that is just as unique and spectacular?"
— Nadia, Visual Marketing Designer

— Lauren, Business Development Manager and Payment Support

"It has always been a dream of mine to travel to northern Scandinavia, and this dome is perfect for seeing the Northern Lights, along with experiencing a true winter."

— Neil, Editor and Email Marketing Specialist

"The photos probably don't do it justice—it's completely isolated, has an amazing view, and is perfect for fishing and exploring in isolation."

— Jeff, COO

"I would love to visit this accommodation; it looks like paradise!"
— Rebecca, Brand Manager

"A trip to this enchanting tree house in France combines two dreams of mine: disappearing to the woods to focus on my writing and staying in a real tree house! The cherry on top for me here is the hot tub on the deck; it's the perfect dose of luxury that will ensure I come back to work relaxed and refreshed."
— Kyomi, Social Media and Ads Manager

"I think it would be ridiculously cool to have a relaxed getaway at a place as idyllic as this one. During the days I'd head off to the Sacred Monkey Sanctuary, the rice terraces, Kelingking Beach, and the Banyumala Twin Waterfalls, before heading back to the retreat for some pampering and pool action."
— Eric, Editor

"We live surrounded by too many things, and our daily lives are full of distractions. I love the idea of spending a romantic getaway in this accommodation, which offers what you need to experience JOMO (Joy Of Missing Out)and focus on what's important: your relationship."
— Rocio, Operations Manager

"I would like to walk the Appalachian Trail and spend a night in this amazing cabin along the way."
— Danny, Business Development Manager

"When I was a kid, we had a tree house in my backyard. I've grown up a lot since then, but I will never outgrow the sense of adventure a tree house gives my inner child."
— Jessica I., Key Account Manager
